IN THIS WAY I CONSTRUCTED MY SLICE-LOGO FOR 3D-DESIGN.
I USED THE BOOLEAN FUNKTION TO GET THE DIFFERENT HOLES
INSIDE THE SPHERE! AND NOW THE EXPLANATION!
What's so logical about boolean algebra?
George Boole believed in what he called the ‘process of analysis’, that is, the process by which combinations of interpretable symbols are obtained. It is the use of these symbols according to well-determined methods of combination that he believed presented ‘true calculus’.
Today, all our computers employ Boole's logic system - using microchips that contain thousands of tiny electronic switches arranged into logical ‘gates’ that produce predictable and reliable conclusions.
The basic logic gates comprise of AND, OR and NOT. It is these gates, used in differing combinations, that allow the computer to execute its operations using binary language.
NEVER THE LESS, ENJOY THE RESULT! YOU LIKE IT?
BEST REGARDS, KALLE!

I always find the paradox of Boolean operations in 3D packages are that they often lead to very unsatisfactory and messy results, unlike their algebraic equivalents, but I'm sure they work perfectly every time in Cinema 4D and balk at nothing........very nice, whatever it is;-)
